Review: Born A Crime

Rating: 4.5 stars I was very sceptical back when The Today Show replaced Jon Stewart with Trevor Noah, a comedian from South Africa, who very few had even heard of. He's still nowhere near Jon Stewart, but over time I have come to appreciate Trevor Noah for his own unique brand of humor and wit.... Continue Reading →

Review: Need To Know

Rating: 3.75 Stars This book really took me by surprise! I don't know why I bought it, maybe because there wasn't much choice at the time, but I'm so glad that I did. This is one book that all fans of suspense, thrills and espionage should read. That it is written by a former CIA... Continue Reading →

Review: The Girl Before

Rating: 3.5 Stars Another day, another thriller. This one, while above average, still fails where it counts the most.... the climax. It's not a boring book, not at all. It is so interesting that once I started reading, I found it hard to put it down, and finished it in one day only. It was... Continue Reading →

So, now reading them again feels like I'm reading a new book. As the name suggests, in this book Lord Edgeware dies, leaving behind... Continue Reading →

Review:Luckiest Girl Alive

Rating: 3 Stars No matter what you think when you see the cover and read the blurb, Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll is NOT a thriller. I went in expecting a thriller, and kept waiting for the twist which never came. I had seen the book on bookstagram, and as always, avoided reading reviews,... Continue Reading →

Review: Austenistan

Rating: 2.5 Stars I don't like giving a low rating to books by Pakistani authors, and if they are female Pakistani authors, then I'd rather skip reviewing the book than give it a bad rating. I wanted to do the same with this book, but despite my low rating, there are some things here that... Continue Reading →
